tabithasbookblog - I’m beyond excited for this book!! I’ve heard so many good things about it, and this review just makes me want to read it even more! AND. The author is wicked nice which just makes me want to read it even more!

Glad to hear that you ended up enjoying it!

Alexa S. - I wasn’t quite sure what to make of One Man Guy, but I’m very happy that you wound up enjoying it! It sounds pretty darn cute. Plus, I’m usually a sucker for books about (a) a turning point summer and (b) set in New York City. Will have to check this out at some point!

Rebecca - This sounds adorable! I think I’d like this, especially after your lovely review. Apart from bit of preachiness, it looks great. I wonder if my library will get a copy… Glad you enjoyed it!

Amy - This DOES sound adorable! I’m really intrigued by the idea that Ethan doesn’t try to question things or make a huge, complicated, CAPSLOCK deal out of his relationship. (Well, I’m assuming that this is what happens because I haven’t read it yet.) The easygoing attitude is pretty special, I think. Ethan sounds like a great dude, and I always love a relationship that seems organic and not deliberately staged. Lots of promising things in this debut!!

Mary @ BookSwarm - This sounds too adorable. I feel like I might want to re-experience NYC through their dates after reading it. And I love that the relationship progression is natural, not forced.

Rosie - This sounds like a really nice and sweet read. I haven’t read anything like that before but there’s no time like the present. Sounds like a nice summer read 🙂
